Faint reception, Arabic service per their web site.  First reception of AIR in many months.

1925 Reception staying consistently over noise floor with verygood peaks but I believe sign off is in 5 minutes
1926 Reception now very good, OM talking at length
1928 Subcontinent music
1929 Off mid-song

I donít think AIR has any English service unfortunately. It is not listed in their schedule at all. The schedule below is from the British DX Club.

Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using a Sony ICF-2010 with an 11 meter inverted V antenna.

AIR Jeypore is a domestic broadcaster, would not show on an external listing.  Possible pick up on SDR.

The external schedule in the link below was updated last month and includes a couple of other bands:

AIR Jeypore shut off shortwave on December 31 2021 along with AIR Srinagar. Currently only AIR Leh (which as no English program) and the external service are left on shortwave. That schedule shows no AIR Jeypore or other English programs. According to a schedule on another website from when AIR Jeypore was on shortwave it should be on right now. I checked on the Bengaluru, India KiwiSDR and found no trace of any signal on 5040. Not even a carrier.

In Persian at 1600 UTC, 6/10 on the meter direct with the whip and 3 meters of wire in a tree. Fairly distorted audio at the start, distortion seemed to disappear at 1605 UTC.

1602 UTC-Quran readings
1605 UTC-Talk in Persian
1616 UTC-Music, spoken over by announcer
1617 UTC-Unknown Indian music with YL vocals
1621 UTC-Talk in Persian
1640 UTC-Unknown Indian music with OM vocals, often spoken over
1646 UTC-Unknown Indian music with OM vocals, signal starting to fade out
